decrypt "%SignonUserPswd"

In the Signon PeopleCode there exists "%SignonUserPswd"; but it is encrypted. Has anyone found a way to decrypt it?

for example stuart becomes s+b1yCxg/XFeHXe5YZvpW4QQZuoMV4/FOd6kebBfyekfNxTKsjXuP4pRHR/GH3rTGcrfydh8/bInnZFLzhH+OQAA

Kind Regards, Bart

    Do not try to decrypt it, it will not work.
    Even if someone knows, it will not be shared, this is a major security bridge.

    If you need this for something like SSO, you can rather encrypt the password supplied and check that with the encrypted database value.

    Thanks Hakan for your reaction.

    No I don't need it for SSO, but I wanted to write my own business interlink (to replace "LDAP_BIND") to validate passwords.

    Because they want me to allow students, whose account has expired on the LDAP server but use the correct password, access to a specific selfservice page.

    (In my opinion "LDAP_BIND" does only provide a return status "-1" when the validation fails, but no information why.)

    Kind regards, Bart
